“I believe reading’s abiding value is that it opens windows on places, times and people we can never experience in person. Pick up Fitzgerald there we are on the beach in the south of France with Dick and Nicole Diver 100 years ago. Visit Berlin in 1945 with Beevor and we can hear the bombs exploding and see the buildings toppling. Reading makes us more informed, more civilized, more thoughtful, more tolerant of others’ ideas. I have never met an avid reader who is a nasty or boring person.”
